Definitely not non-transit items.

GTFS defines the equivalent of a stop area. The Paris regional transit
agency largely reflects these as transfer points between lines of different
bus companies. It can also be useful to link a stop position to a platform,
which can be very useful when it's not clear which street the platform is

A stop area in Paris, for example, might be Gare Saint-Lazare, which would
group (a) the many bus stops (platforms) named "Gare Saint-Lazare" in the
neighborhood, (b) possibly any associated stop positions for those bus
platforms, (c) the metro lines with Gare Saint-Lazare stations, the
platforms of which differ, (d) the regional train lines that terminate at
Gare Saint-Lazare, (e) any intercity trains that go there.

In general I don't use them.
